Our clogged ports

Sorry for the sound quality this time around. I haven’t unpacked the audio equipment yet from our move.

I thought we’d have some inflation after the lockdowns were over. However, the Biden administration has not been doing much too keep that under control.

I said that when a liberal restaurant owner kicked out a prominent Republican that it was wrong. Today I’m going on the record to say that when it happens on the Right it’s just as wrong. However, this time there is a funny turn of events.

Both Republicans and Democrats have been squishy on the issue of increasing the debt limit. Neither side has been better than the other. But that’s about to change.

Episode 321: 9/11 20 Years On

9/11 Headlines

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 20 years since the devastating terror attack on September 11, 2001. The memories seem so fresh. But are they?

In this episode you’ll hear my memories, a listener’s memories, and a Romanian’s ruminations on how we came together in the days following.

The latest casualty of socialized medicine

Don’t ever let the UK National Health Service find out you have a child on life support. They’ve found another one and have condemned it to death, and will not allow her parents to take her out of the country for treatment.

I first mentioned James Younger in October of 2019. His mom had convinced him he was really a girl, and got sole custody in a divorce. There’s more to the story now. I have some good news and some bad news.

And what more can I say about the botched withdrawal / retreat from Afghanistan? Well, I have my own quick take.

This time out, we’re going to have just good news. No conservative commentary. (Well, maybe just a little bit.)

Just private companies, or something more?

Why would you voluntarily seek to represent a group that you disagree with? And should you be replaced in that representation?

When Big Tech social media companies ban someone, some suggest that since they are private companies that’s OK. But there are other considerations. And what happens when they start doing the bidding of the government?

Banned on Twitter

It seems that these days you can be sent to Facebook or Twitter “jail” for merely stating scientific facts or bedrock judicial principles. Or you could lose your job entirely. Who would do such a thing?

The enhanced unemployment benefits due to the COVID pandemic can have a downside that, in the long run, will hurt the workers it’s supposed to be protecting. But there is a better way, if Democrats can get on board.

DON’T do this!

The trend these days is to bring politics into everything; into chicken sandwiches, airlines, pillows, baseball, and many other area where we don’t need it.

We don’t need it because all it’s doing is widening the political divide. I’ll give 2 examples of it in this episode; Delta Airlines and Major League Baseball, and their reactions to the Georgia election law recently passed.

And I weigh in with a short statement on the Derek Chauvin verdicts.

The Surge

Why is there suddenly a massive surge of immigrants rushing to the southern border? Well, it turns out that the answer is pretty simple; people respond to incentives.

You may have thought that Jack Phillips of Masterpiece Cakeshop was back to business as usual after his Supreme Court decision. Not so fast.

Kids in cages, or something else?

Did you know terrorists keep office hours? No? Well just ask Merrick Garland, former Supreme Court nominee and current Attorney General nominee. He’ll set you straight.

The Washington Post has turned on a dime when describing detention facilities at the border. What a difference an administration makes!

And a cousin of mine had a great observation regarding the track women’s sports have been on in her lifetime.

Rush Limbaugh, RIP

“Impeachment season 2” is now behind us. I give my review of this shortened season (short due to no investigation episodes and because no witnesses were called).

And one of the greats of talk radio, Rush Limbaugh, has passed away. He was a pioneer in his field, bringing conservative views and explaining them in a way that we could all understand them.
